Dormer window.

Recommended Posts


I'm using a mac and vw2013.

I have been building a roof in 3d. I have some dormer windows to build but they are not simple. The window does from the roof ( in front view) into the wall of the from of the house, so they are not in the attic. The windows are in the bedroom so the roof is low, therefore the windows are in the wall and the roof. Sorry it's complicated to explain but is simple when looking at it. When I build the dormer window, the window stays in the roof area, is there a way to edit it so the window is sittings in the wall and the roof ?

Pls help am in serious deadline.

Short answer is no. But there are ways to get around it. I suggest creating the appropriate openings in both the roof and the wall then creating a custom symbol placed into the openings.

I think you can model this kind of roof by starting with the roof object, but then ungrouping it to make roof faces, that you can edit to create the roof you want. There are a couple of short movies on my YouTube channel that might help:
